I left East London in route to Port Elizabeth which would have me riding along the southern part of South Africa. I was here before, when I rode the Karoo with Tony at the beginning of the trip.
This time the temperatures where colder. The winds again coming off the coast where cold and strong. I could see rain all around me but lucky me I had managed to pass around them.
This section of South Africa is known as the Garden Route. Major mountains running along the right side (inland) of me as I head west and green landscape with the ocean and cliffs to my left. Traffic was very heavy today being a weekend. My fastest speed was about 60. Speed cameras as scattered along the way and I believe I may have triggered one of them as I saw a major flash as I crossed a large bridge. We'll see if they send my a bill in the mail.
Today was another long day of riding. 400 miles with very slow moving traffic cold weather had me worm down. I wanted to make it a little further down the road but I could see a major down pour of rain ahead of me and I knew luck would not help me this time. The next village was Stormsriver, and thats where I pulled off. First thing, get a place for the night, seconded thing, hot chocolate to warm up.
